Licensed skilled LEGO builder, Jumpei Mitsui, simply completed building a LEGO replica of certainly one of Japan’s most well-known photographs: Hokusai’s The Nice Wave off Kanagawa. And what’s much more spectacular is that he went past recreating the 2D picture and constructed out a complete 3D panorama—full with boats and all.
Mitsui has at all times been fascinated about Hokusai’s iconic woodblock print, and this venture has been one thing he’s thought of constructing for many years. Since he’d be changing the portray right into a 3D panorama, Mitsui needed to make sure that he may correctly convey the bodily dynamics of waves, so he learn myriad educational papers on big wave formations and watched hours of YouTube movies of waves. Then, he created a sketch (as seen under), which he would then use to construct his closing mannequin.
The large LEGO sculpture is on everlasting show in Osaka’s Hankyu Brick Museum, which is devoted to showcasing Mitsui’s work, as he’s the one licensed skilled LEGO builder within the nation. He additionally built a LEGO replica of Wind God and Thunder God, a portray by Rinpa artist Ogata Korin from the 18th century.
